Words of Faith Change Circumstances

valley_dry_bonesEzekiel 37:3-4   He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”  So I answered, “O Lord God, You know”.  Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones…”

One word stands out to me reading this – “AGAIN”.

“Again He said to me”.  What was God saying the first time that He had to repeat?  Is it possible that God’s initial question was not supposed to be asking for a factual or philosophical answer?  God doesn’t ever ask us questions because He doesn’t know the answer.  He asks us questions for OUR benefit… not His.  He was trying to shift Ezekiel’s perspective from what he was staring at, to another “reality” that he could not see with physical eyes that is just as real to God.

Was the initial question actually an invitation to prophesy to the bones?  If God is even posing the question about your flailing business, or your damaged relationship, or your sick body… then maybe what He is doing is asking you to step up and prophesy to your situation, and bring life where there doesn’t seem to be any by the power of words spoken with faith in the God who commands us to speak.

What is God asking you about your circumstances?  “Can you be restored and feel normal again?”  He is the shepherd who restores our soul.  “Can you bounce back from chronic illness?”  He calls Himself “the resurrection and the life” just before He raises someone from the dead!!

Spend 15 minutes with God today.  Ask Him what He is asking you.  Then speak creative words.  “It will NOT be like this any more!”  “No!  It’s time for you to change!”  “Life, health, restoration… come!”
